Welcome to SUMMER... Ok, maybe I'm getting ahead of myself, but it's almost here! To celebrate the changing of Spring to Summer, Abbey, Jessi, and myself are having a fun link up. Today we're linking up our favorite Spring/ Summer outfits and can't wait to see all of yours.
THIS dress is from Lulus and I am in L.O.V.E. It's light and delicate, but it's also brocade and intricate. Can things get better? I think not.
Since I live in Utah and the weather is unpredictable, it's important to dress "in between" the seasons. So I dressed it down with a denim jacket which will keep me warm if the weather decides to turn.
This necklace is from Fifth & Mae and I can't get enough. Seriously her jewelry is so simple yet stunning and the prices will stop you in your tracks- in the best way possible.
This dress is not meant to be worn with an undershirt, but as a modest girl it was a neccessity. I actually don't mind it, it turned out cute (imo) and looked surprisingly cute without the jacket (but that's an outfit for another day).
Of course with Summer you get Sun and a lot of it, so I threw on THESE Lulus sunglasses. I am a whimp when it comes to my hair and the heat, I get hot so easily, so I tossed it up into a top knot, plus it shows off the adorable heart studs (also from Fifth and Mae).
I have such big plans for this Summer! I've been feeling extremely cooped up lately and I can't wait to get outside and have adventures! You know me and adventure. I'm most looking forward to camping and hiking (duh). As much as I love looking dressed up like this I love being U.G.L.Y. in my large tshirts and zero makeup (ya, the makeup artist doesn't wear makeup if she doesn't have to. boom.)
This outfit is perfect for a Summer wedding, party, date, or girls night out. Can't wait! What are you most looking forward too this Summer? Be sure to link up your Spring/ Summer outfits! I'm excited to see what you guys will be wearing.
P.S. It's my moms birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! I love you and appreciate all you do for me and your support in all my dreams (we both know there have been a lot- good and bad).
My favorite flower is the Gerber Daisy, I just love how big & pretty they are and how one flower can be pretty all by itself. -Shio
I love peonies, my mom always grew peonies in her garden, then when they bloomed she'd bring them inside and put them in vases and bowls all over the house. -Jessica
My favorite flowers are garden roses- one, because they are gorgeous and two, because they were in my wedding bouquet. -Elise
To me there is nothing more beautiful than a pairing of diverse flowers as they celebrate the the unique beauty in each of us- the stranger the pairing the more beautiful because hey, they're flowers! -Jet
My favorite flower is a geranium because they come in so many colors and are always covered in blooms! -Mackenzie
Thank you to all of my sponsors! Now my turn...
Wildflowers are my favorite- all of them, there's nothing more beautiful than a mountainside covered in brightly colored blossoms.
Title for this post= not happening. So not creative right now...
I actually wore this outfit while I was in Southern Utah in March but never posted it. We snapped these photos while we waited for breakfast, it was morning still but incredibly sunny, so the photos turned out really bright. I actually love how warm they look though. It was perfect weather there, and now it's finally perfect weather here (although it's supposed to cool down this weekend, go figure).
This sweater is from Lulu's and it's seriously my favorite. I've worn it so many times my obsession is obvious. You can see one of the other ways I wore it- HERE, then go snag one before they're gone! (bonus: they're on sale)
I am a sucker for photo apps. I don't have games or books on my phone, but I have a bunch of photo apps. I wanted to show you some of my favorites today... or at least show you photos where I've used them.
First, I'm obsessed with the newly released A Beautiful Mess app! That blog is incredibly inspiring and creative, so it only makes sense that their app is too! Great job, Elsie and Emma!
Krop Circle is a new find, while they have a lot of framing options, I really only downloaded it for the paint splash frame!
Next I am loving After Light. They have the best filters and editing options as well as amazing frame options that include transparency control!
Last but not least is VSCO Cam. The editing options are wonderful and allow you to create light, minimalistic, and dreamy photos.
Then I upload all my pretty photos to Instagram, the king of photo apps.
What are your favorite photo apps?
P.S. Can I say "apps" a few more times or will it drive you crazy?
